SRS Service Tips
DTCs are the most important source of information when troubleshooting the SRS. Always inspect DTCs before disconnecting the battery.
The SRS is equipped with a backup power source. If work is started within 90 seconds after disconnecting the negative (-) terminal cable from the
battery, the SRS may deploy.
The center airbag sensor needs to be replaced anytime an airbag has deployed.
When troubleshooting SRS DTC B1650/32, check the Occupant Classification System (OCS) for DTCs before disconnecting the negative (-) terminal
cable from the battery. DTC B1650/32 is an indication the SRS system has detected errors in the OCS operation.
Use a volt/ohmmeter with high impedance (10 kOhm/V minimum) for troubleshooting the electrical circuits.
Even in the case of a minor collision when the SRS does NOT deploy, the following parts should be inspected:
Front passenger airbag assembly
Center airbag sensor assembly
Front airbag sensor
Front seat inner belt assembly
Seat position sensor
Front seat airbag assembly
Side airbag sensor
Curtain shield airbag assembly
Rear airbag sensor
Front seat outer belt assembly.
